    How Second Coming contributes to our understanding of the historical moment in TFA

    I am having trouble figuring out what this prompt is asking me to argue:
    1. Achebe's novel takes its title from the opening verses of "The Second Coming", a poem --by W.B. Yeats, an Irish poet, essayist and dramatist. This poem captures Yeats’s sense of the crumbling of the civilization of his time. How well does the poem contribute to our understanding of the historical moment Achebe describes in his novel? What aspects of Igbo tradition are "falling apart and what contributes to the disintegration of the society? Is the movement progressive--or sudden? At what point in the novel does it occur to you that the disintegration of Umuofia is ineluctable (unavoidable)?

    I also don't know how to organize my essay, thank you for your assistance!

    Welcome to the forum.

    When must you submit your essay to your teacher/tutor?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    How can anyone help you organise something when they don't know what ideas you have?
